Clean Up Day!

Yet another one of those, I still hate trying to get all the cleaning done, but I love the result. I was in luck, because the boys woke up early and did all the downstairs floors already, although they omitted the vacuuming. That was easy to remedy though (suckered Tara into it), and now my downstairs floors look great.

Later, they did some work upstairs too, but looks like things are not going to be finished today. Oh well. I did my clean up day work by folding and putting away seven laundry baskets full of clean laundry. It's amazing how fast it accumulates. I put on some chinese lessons while doing it, which distracted me from the boredom of the task.

We went to the game store and got an xbox! It's supposed to be installed in the basement when we have cleaned up more of it. The kids are very excited. They put their money together to pay for it. I told them I wasn't going to pay for yet another video games console. It's cool when they cooperate like that. Tim selected some games for his birthday tomorrow.

I ate the last remainders of my durian, so I am durian deprived again. I made them into a durian smoothie, it was soooooooooooooooooo good. I have been putting out the pits and the squirrels seem to really be enjoying them. Who would have thunk that squirrels love durian pits?

Sylvia is really into 'babies'. She is always carrying around one or more of them, and they have to go places with us. So cute!
